I have been a devoted Bradbury fan since I first read FARENHEIT 451 in high school Some say he is over the top I say they are too closed in their thinking Granted, Bradbury is an acquired taste His word choice is unique, confounding, and even sometimes bizarre But after reading one of stories, you will understand why he chose to describe something the way he did Some of the earlier reviews about Bradbury s works have stated that he has focused too much on the dying notion of a 40s or 50s childhood, that he has repeatedly mined and recycled his ideas only to make them bland or less impacting To those reviewers I offer my pity Yes, he has seemed to stick with a certain age and storytelling that lends him to recycle an idea or two, but that is where the magic happens in his storytelling Just when you think that you ve read something like this before, Bradbury takes your hand and reassures you that this is a different version, one to think about, ruminate over, or discuss with your own imagination.Bradbury encourages you to look beyond what you think you know and explore different realms of thought and possibility QUICKER THAN THE EYE not only offers a reader to escape into a world of wonder, but makes a wonder of the known world Not all of these stories are the proverbial homerun, but take a look at these ones Zaharoff Richter Mark VRemember Sascha The FinneganThe Very Gentle MurdersAt the End of the Ninth YearBugExchange I m sure that if you read these stories you will see how a true craftsman can beguile an audience through wordplay and story, description and setting There is also an afterword, where Bradbury urges everyone to make every moment and possibility everlasting, important, awe inspiring if you ve ever had any notions of wanting to write yourself, this afterword may be the encouragement and fire you ve sought but never found You may have had your doubts about Bradbury in the past, but forget about those reservations and allow yourself to become lost in his creation.We can all use a bit of time in someone else s playground every once in a while Don t you agree
